Hi El,
Well you are using Turnigy Plush ESCs with about 300Hz update rates and indeterminate PWM update rate from the gyros. That would have to be measured to be valid. Plus your arms are on the large side so lower updates rates are OK. We would have to measure them to be sure. It flys nicely, but not significantly better than the previous video that was in fact a smaller tricopter hovering indoors at a low altitude with lots of prop turbulence. Like all these videos, they need to be compared to similar build and similar flight conditions. As an example there are nice XUFO flight videos, but in reality those with the original mechanical gyro fly terribly compared to any of the multicopter setups out there that we enjoy flying today
Cheers,
Jim
